New Russian Civil War Figures Workbench

I have just finished the first three of Leonids  Russian cavalry for the  Civil War period and thought I might share the results. Using the tablet again so chance to see if its any easier. At the same time photobucket have decided to charge 400 dollars for third party hosting so I have also switched to flickr.

Leonid is a Russian gamer from St  Petersburg who had a range of  Russian Civil War figures commissioned I think by the same chap who sculpts the lovely studio Siberia figures but I nay be wrong.

The attraction for me is that it adds some variety to the Copplestone range and allows me to finish units off.  I think i mentioned before that under old rules I had 12 figure units and having moved to 8 figures I had an opportunity to increase the number of units without buying and painting lots.

The first figure that got my attention was a Kuban cossack with rifle. It issuch a lovely figure. Added to this I had 7Kubancossacks who were short of the last figure.

The first picture shows 2 Copplestone cossacks. The second is Leonids. The last is both together.


 Being really pleased with how that came under out I also made a start on some Siberian Cossacks. In similar vein I had 2 already left over so needed 6 more here are the first two. First 2 Copplestone again then the lancer. This figure had his sword damaged a little so I decided to drill his hand out for a lance and I am really pleased with the result. I also used a Copplestone horse whilst Leonids were drying. These are a bit bright with their white gymnastirka shirts but I like them.  The last is a Leonid figure on original horse with shouldered sword. Then a group shot.

    2. I know Leonid well (we do wargeming together), so I have the opportunity to see all the new items in the modeling stage.

    3. I look forward to seeing more, especially the Cossacks in the tall fur caps!

    4. And what kind? Don or Kuban? It's just that the Leonid already has a figure in a big fur hat for the Kuban, Terek Cossacks or for the cavalrymen of the native equestrian division.

    5. Kuban, I have picked up three Kuban cossacks one with a tall fur hat like wild division or Shukiro's Wolves, wondered if he will do more.

    6. Alas, he has not yet paused this topic. Although I persuade. We need cadets, sisters of mercy and simply expand the line of figures.
      But while he switched to the release of other figures.
      And Shkuro had the usual kubats just tail wolves sewn to the hats. True, there were hats from the skin of a wolf. About this you can see in my blog: https://pb-wg.blogspot.ru/2016/06/blog-post.html
